OK here we go...

I have had issues with my back and finally had a Dr do some tests on me.

I have a RF of 93 and the second test was 80.

I have read the higher the number the more severe the desease. BUT, how high is high. I know 93 is higher than normal, but is it VERY high or is that just a little high? What exactly is high?


More information.......

I also have high C- Reactive Protein and I know that means there is inflamation somewhere in my body... DUH! I could have told that that!

It is 1.29


The Bun / Creatinine sample was a little high, but that means I was a little dehydrated, so that is ok I guess. It was 23. That is barely higher than the norm of 22.


My main question goes back to the RF factor, but any information I can get is welcome.


Thank you!

  • I did find some relief for the extreme tiredness I have. My Dr suggested B12 shots, but my insurance will not cover them, so I finally found a place on the internet that is well known and reasonable in price... OK don't blast me that I am spamming, because this may be great for others. mydietsolutions.com sells all kinds of B12 shots for very low price and they have a REAL Dr on hand! The B 12 pills I have been taken are working ok, so the B12 shots should be better. I just wish I could make all my pain go away. OK here we go...
